"Cyber Monday has replaced Black Friday for most people and has become one of the most exciting shopping days of the year!" said Ashley Eckstein (owner and founder of Her Universe). "I get overwhelmed by the big crowds on Black Friday and prefer to shop from the comfort of my own home, but I am always looking for a deal. With FREE Shipping and a FREE autographed gift, we've made shopping for yourself, or the fangirl in your life, much easier."I'll second that thought. It always seems like a fun idea, but in reality hitting the malls any day during the entire three day (or is it four day now?) Black Friday weekend is an exercise in aggravation and frustration more than anything else. The phenomenon that's become Cyber Monday though, that's a whole other story.
Sitting at my desk, flipping through web pages, and clicking 'add to cart' instead of waiting on lines of painful length? Yes please.
This year, you (or that special someone who's buying something for you) will be taking home a really neat gift with your purchase at Her Universe that'll make that already pretty comfy experience all that much better. For the third year in a row, the company will be giving away a Star Wars 'holiday' themed pin. This little guy will have an extremely limited production run and will be (first come first served) free with any purchase!
Joining the R2-D2 and Yoda pins of Christmas' Past is 2012's Chewbacca. Santa Chewy will also come complete with a signed certificate of authenticity that bears the autograph of the voice of Ahsoka Tano herself, Ashley Eckstein.
Just to reiterate, these are super limited in run (only 1,000 will be made). So if you want one, log onto Her Universe early on Cyber Monday and make sure Chewy makes his way to your house for the Holidays! And while we're talking Her Universe here's a taste of some of the cool stuff you'll find for that Geek Girl in your life on the site.
Oh, and did I mention that shipping is totally free on Cyber Monday? No? Well I did now.
